To Aaron's family: I cannot imagine the unbelievable grief that you are feeling. Please know that you are all thought of and prayed for as you face these difficult times. There are no words that can make you feel better, but I will pray for peace in all of your hearts.

To Aaron: Craig and I will miss you so much. Thankfully, every single memory that we have of you are fun, funny, special and quite memorable. You were the best vacation buddy ever. Your heart was HUGE, and your love for your family was very evident. Your laughter was contagious, and your funny practical jokes were always spot on….you were truly Craig’s long-lost brother, and we are (by far) better people for having met and known you.

I cannot imagine a vacation without our best man…Rest in peace, my friend. You will be missed.
